I feel like I always have a clipboard with me! I have one clipboard for reading conference notes and one for writing conference notes. I write my anecdotal notes for my readers and writers on the sheets provided in this file. Not only does it keep everything organized and in one place for each student, but it is easy to note progress and also quickly look to see what I should continue working on with each student. I also use the notes when I am writing report cards and meeting with parents. I recommend printing these sheets back-to-back. When you fill up one, file it in binder (or whatever you use to keep student work) and get out a new sheet.
